Is there an effective way of multitasking?

-Ana Melikian

In this episode, I delve into the fascinating world of multitasking and whether it is truly effective or just a myth. I introduces a thought-provoking concept shared by Nir Eyal, the renowned author of “Indistractable.”

Although multitasking is often portrayed as counterproductive in the high-performance world, is there a possibility that there is, in fact, an effective way to multitask?

Through an immersive exercise, I demonstrate the pitfalls of traditional multitasking and the incremental time it takes to transition between tasks. But don't fret, I also explore an intriguing concept called “cross modal attention” shared by Nir Eyal in his article, “Surprise! There’s a Right Way to Multitask.”
